The Criterion Collection continue to dent my wallet with their newest update of titles coming to Blu-ray in June. William Cameron Menzies's Things to Come has been rumoured to be coming to the collection for a long time, so I'm stoked to see that it's finally official.

From Criterion:
A landmark collaboration between writer H. G. Wells, producer Alexander Korda, and designer and director William Cameron Menzies, Things to Come is a science fiction film like no other, a prescient political work that predicts a century of turmoil and progress. Skipping through time, Things to Come bears witness to world war, dictatorship, disease, the rise of television, and finally, utopia.

Conceived, written, and overseen by Wells himself as an adaptation of his own work, this mega-budgeted production, the most ambitious ever from Korda's London Films, is a triumph of imagination and technical audacity.
